Kevin Dunn (“Transformers”, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”) has been tapped by HBO to co-star in the David Milch / Michael Mann drama pilot Luck. Also joining the cast will be Kerry Condon and Tom Payne, while Nick Nolte is in talks to join.
“Luck,” from Michael Mann and David Milch, takes a look at the worlds of horse racing and gambling through a diverse group of characters surrounding a racetrack. It centers on an intelligent, intuitive tough man (Hoffman) who always has been involved with gambling.
The four join previously cast Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Farina and John Ortiz.
Dunn will play the prodigious misanthrope who is the ringmaster of a syndicate of misfits. Nolte would play the trainer of a top racehorse. Condon will play the exercise rider for the horse who is interested in Bug Boy (British actor Payne), an apprentice jockey.
